WORST CITY - Algiers, Algeria

Algiers, Algeria

Population: 2 Million

Worst Feature: Islamic Terrorists

Best Feature: No French

After years of relative peace, since the ousting of The French and most other Europeans, and becoming a predominately Muslim City in a Predominantly Muslim Country, Algiers is once again a major trouble spot in the world, and not a very nice place to live especially if you are Westerner.

As recently as March 2007 the Algerian Security forces have been fighting Islamic Militants in Algeria who have pledged their support to Al-Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden.

The Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat, The GSPC, now dubs itself the "Armed Branch of Al-Qaeda in Islamic Maghreb", and has claimed responsibility for a series of deadly attacks on American and Russian targets.

OK so Algiers is now home to our enemies in the “War on Terror” – but at least they kicked out the French.

Algeria is the second largest country in Africa. On the shores of the Mediterranean, it borders Tunisia, Libya, Niger, Mali, Mauritania and Morocco. Like most of the Sahara region, it has been populated since the early Stone Age. French colonisation began in 1827 and after a bitter war of independence with France lasting eight years, Algeria became independent in 1962.

Unlike many African countries, Algeria is relatively highly industrialised, the leading industry being hydrocarbons. Crude oil and liquified natural gas are the main exports. Unemployment is high though and the overall standard of living remains very low. Despite its many social and economic problems, Algeria has been very successful in implementing an education policy and over 70 per cent of Algerian children are enrolled in school, which is one of the highest rates in the developing world.


. . . SOS Children also work to prevent child abandonment in and around Draria through our ‘Family Strengthening Programme’ (FSP). 180 children and their families, a third of whom are affected by HIV / AIDS, are offered nutritional, educational and legal support, and mothers are offered vocational training so they can set up a business; within 3-5 years, most families are independent from this FSP as they are then able to support themselves financially and emotionally.

Following a further earthquake in May 2003 which claimed over 2000 lives and left thousands more homeless, SOS Children established an emergency aid programme, providing food and temporary shelter and accommodation.

At present they support over 500 people in Algeria through one SOS Children’s Village, one SOS Youth Home, one SOS Nursery School and one SOS Family Strengthening Programme.
